Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Gautam Buddha Nagar seat in Uttar Pradesh has seen a limited electoral history, with just three Lok Sabha contests. The Bahujan Samaj Party clinched victory in the first elections in 2009, but since then, the Bharatiya Janata Party has established dominance with consecutive victories in 2014 and 2019, marking its strong presence in the constituency.

In the ongoing 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the battleground will feature the BJP-led NDA, the SP-led I.N.D.I.A bloc, and the BSP. Once again, the BJP has nominated their incumbent MP Mahesh Sharma, who secured victories in both 2014 and 2019 by substantial margins, cementing his position as a formidable contender. Sharma had initially contested in 2009 without success but rallied back impressively.

Those contesting Sharma are Mahendra Singh Nagar from the Samajwadi Party and Rajendra Singh Solanki from the Bahujan Samaj Party.
